It takes time to heal. . You have to let yourself get emotion right now though and let everything out instead of bottling things like most people do. Just distract yourself by whatever means necessary to keep your mind occupied and from ever thinking about him. Friends has helped me in the past to get over someone by simply hanging with them more often, trying new things or actives and simply have fun. I have also joined a gym to exercise and clear my mind about things. The more I interact with people, the easier it was for me to get over someone. I hope you feel better soon

Honestly, time does heal. I dealt with a break up a few months ago. The most painful time in my life, I felt like I could never get over it, I even ended up on antidepressants. It was ugly. Although it hurts seeing him with someone else, I cry less now, my life is falling back together again and the idea of being with someone new doesn't freak me out as much.
Like @aeracura so eloquently said, let yourself feel upset and give yourself a break from your responsibilities if you have to. Break-ups are similar to grieving, you just need to give it time.
